Mod patchwork photo Transfer Medium
First, a note on the sheet. You can buy sheets of aluminum at most hardware stores, in this case, I bought one with a copper coating, and you can most likely cut it to the desired size for you Otherwise, you can cut it to size with a jig saw or similar machine at home, but do this very carefully and according to the machine instructions.
also Note, Mod patchwork photo Transfer Medium, is unique because it keeps the white parts of the images white. Similar marks should be clear, which means that all white areas of your photos, is the color of the background metal.
step 1: Cut the photo to print, which is so large that no edge remains (unless that's what you want).
step 2: Use you to spread the brush a thick layer of Mod-hodgepodge of photo Transfer Medium on the image side of the paper. It should be evenly and fully, the image will no longer cover, so that you can see.
step 3: Immediately place the image down on the sheet and flatten with your hands you the paper and remove all the bubbles. You do not want to press so hard that the medium penetrates from the sides, but just enough that you will be completely adhered to the metal and no bubbles remain.
set Aside to dry overnight. Depending on the temperature and humidity, it will be ready within 24 hours.
step 4: Once you feel completely dry and hard, use your Finger to add a little water to one corner of the paper. Press lightly and move your fingers in a circular motion to remove the layer of paper. You go slowly so that you do not accidentally remove the image. Furthermore, all over the paper with wet hands until all of the paper has been removed.
